Enjoy year-long sunshine on clean, uncrowded beaches. This is not 'tourist-brochure-speak'. Dubai and the other Emirates are home to some beautiful stretches of sand and surf. Contact the water sports clubs in town for qualified tuition in windsurfing, water-skiing, sailing and even scuba diving! There is plenty of activity on the beach on Fridays (the weekly holiday) with beach volleyball, jet skiing, windsurfing and any other water-sport you can think of.

Contact your tour operator for organised deep sea fishing tours and paragliding! And while you are here, it wouldn't hurt to respect local customs and traditions. Beach-wear is fine for both men and women on the beach. You would be advised to change into casual, everyday wear before you leave the beach. Generally speaking, modest attire is recommended for men and women.

Our map of Dubai will help you find the Mamzar beach park (near Deira) and the Jumeirah Beach Park (near Satwa).

Amusement Arcades

Soaring temperatures during summer and cold desert winds during winter are ideal for outings to cool temperature-controlled amusement arcades. At the Magic Planet (Deira City Centre - refer map) you can play golf, try bowling and test your skills on the latest Nintendo games as your children romp in a purpose-built play area or opt for any of the fun rides. The latest amusement arcade in town is the Encounter Zone (Wafi Shopping Mall, Karama) where spine-chilling encounters await you at The Chamber. We would also recommend the Fantasy Kingdom at the Al Bustan Centre (off the Al Ittihad Road). An imaginatively designed play-area, the Fantasy Kingdom ranks as one of the best in Dubai. The city boasts of two ice-rinks at the Al Nasr Leisureland (Karama) and at the Galleria (Hyatt Regency). Refer map. Dubai's amusement arcades are usually attached to major malls - Click here to view them all.
